I JUST started taking this medicine. I am on my second week and 4th day. I can tell the difference... I have gained a few pounds (Not a problem trying to gain weight anyway xD) BUT I will CRY over NOTHING. It has made me depressed, but I am slowly coming out of it :) I am going to continue to take it and just hope it passes :) But no other complaints so far!:D

Comment:
I was on TriSprintec for a little over 4 years and was very satisfied with that BC, never had any problems or complaints. Then my pharmacy switched me over to TriPrevifem. I have been on this new BC for about half of a year now and have been noticing serious changes and problems with my body/emotions. My skin began breaking out with terrible acne, even large acne cysts underneath my skin. Before, ... Show Full Comment
